SECED runs a fund scheme to offer financial support to individuals or teams whose academic studies, research, career, or volunteer work aligns with the aims of the Society. Applications for an award of up to £1,000 will be considered. SECED anticipates selecting one or two applications per annum. The total fund in any one year is limited to £1,000.

SECED recognises the importance of diversity in advancing the field of engineering dynamics and wishes to encourage applications from individuals and teams from all different backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. Applications from Young Members are encouraged.

The SECED Fund 2024 will open in June 2024. If you have any question related to the scheme or submission process, please contact the SECED Fund Subcommittee at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
